Description

Built this PC almost year ago, and today I did some cleaning maintenance and replaced my case from Cooler Master Elite 130 to Rosewill Legacy V6.

I use this PC for mainly casual gaming (Dota 2, CS:GO, The Witcher 3, Terraria, Cities: Skyline) and Work (Game Development, Unity3D, GIMP, Microsoft Visual Studio). I use two 24-Inch screen on 1920x1080.

Love it so far! I am planning to upgrade with a low profile CPU Cooler Noctua NH-L9i , and maybe add some extra fans on the Case (can Support Up to 3 x 60mm) to improve the temps.

The temperature isn't so bad than what it was on the CM Case. The CPU run on 38-40C Idle, and 65-68C when gaming ( around 3 degrees higher than the CM Case ).

Part Reviews

CPU

Sufficient enough for my needs! I use my PC for work in Game Development. My usual programs is Unity3D (Game Engine), Microsoft Visual Studio, GIMP and Chrome with several tabs.

Video Card

I am really impressed with this card. Can run CS GO / Dota 2 on max settings at 1080p. Witcher 3 on Medium settings at around 30FPS.

Case

I like it! I was afraid that it might be too small especially I am using a regular ATX PSU, but overall I am satisfied. I had to unscrew the side rack for my GTX 750 Ti to fit, but that's fine too. If you plan to use a custom CPU cooler, make sure to get a low profile one because it might not fit against the PSU. Also on how my PSU Intake fan is facing to the CPU Cooler fighting for air.

ITX is some much fun to see how much you can cram in to a tight space. (Jipster... add comment later) Could you flip your PSU over so it's not creating a "vacuum" over you CPU? Seems like they would be fighting for air. Nice setup, I bought another ITX case today for a mini build like this. Build on!

That's currently my motivation! I tried flipping the PSU so that the fan is facing upwards, but the screw holes on the case wouldn't match. So far the temps isn't a problem. Nice! Will look forward to your build in the builds page!
